Woman arrested after police chase through Santa Barbara

Posted: Updated:

A woman was arrested Thursday morning after an anticlimactic police chase through Santa Barbara. 

The Santa Barbara Police Department says an unidentified woman took off from police when they were trying to conduct a traffic stop just before 1 a.m. 

All vehicles got up to some high speeds throughout Santa Barbara city. Usually a chase would be called off due to safety concerns within the city, but police say there was little to no pedestrian or vehicle traffic in the area, so they continued the chase. 

Eventually, officers say, the driver came to a stop on her own on the 900 block of Barcelona Drive, where police subsequently arrested her. 

Charges are unknown at this time, however, the watch commander says the arrest involved felony evading of a police officer and suspicion of being under the influence.
